Juventus skipper Del Piero upbeat after being released from hospital

Juventus captain Alessandro del Piero is out of hospital.

The veteran was admitted as a precautionary measure following a kick in the head during Sunday's 2-0 win over Cesena.

"Just released," the former Padova player wrote on his Facebook page. "Everything's fine. Ale."
